This new 7.5-hour course, developed in collaboration with Freddie Mac, provides an in-depth look into preparing appraisals for traditional manufactured homes plus insight into CHOICEHomeSM—the new type of high-quality manufactured homes that are built to HUD code but developed with site-built features. You’ll learn how to meet the specific requirements of Freddie Mac, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), Veteran’s Administration (VA), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Fannie Mae using a new, ground-breaking tool—the Manufactured Home Quality Rating Worksheet – which is consistent with the Marshall & Swift®—CoreLogic Residential Cost Handbook and the Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD).

The course begins with a thorough review of existing manufactured housing products then delves into CHOICEHomeSM, a new accessible, affordable addition to America’s housing stock. Applying elementary and complex techniques used in the cost and the sales comparison approaches, you’ll work through a case study of these homes to develop a credible appraisal report.

At the conclusion of this course, you should be able to

  • Identify the multiple types of factory-built housing including manufactured home, Next Generation manufactured home, modular home, and panelized home.
  • Recognize the distinctive construction qualities of manufactured homes and how they differ from site-built homes.
  • Understand the specific secondary market appraisal requirements of Freddie Mac, FHA, USDA, VA, and Fannie Mae.
  • Understand proper data collection techniques for manufactured housing.
  • Develop an overall quality rating for manufactured homes using the Manufactured Home Quality Rating Worksheet.
  • Report accurate results of a manufactured housing appraisal on a Freddie Mac Form 70B (FNMA form 1004C).
  • Develop the cost approach for both a manufactured home and a Next Generation manufactured home using the Marshall & Swift®—CoreLogic Residential Cost Handbook.
  • Utilize the sales comparison approach for a manufactured home appraisal and apply new techniques when appraising a Next Generation manufactured home.
